Vista UAC keeps popping up even though disabled/unchecked

I recently joined a Vista machine to a domain.  The  user keeps getting UAC prompts, even though, if you go to CtrlPanel\Users, the UAC is NOT checked, it is off/disabled.  Why do they still get UAC prompts?

Try going to Control Panel and then Security Center then other setting then turn off UAC

Hi, I believe that if you are logged into a domain then you will receive this because you are not an administrator of the local machine.  Add them to the administrators group and see if it goes away.  You will then have to implement a UAC Group Policy to take care of non-administrative users UAC prompts.

Although, you've probably already tried this....swiching UAC mode off requres a reboot to go info effect

CT - there is no "other settings"
HTH - all are local admins (domain account is member of the local "admin group")
graye - Yes, already rebooted

Start up GPEdit.msc, Go to Computer Settings->Security->Local Policies->Security Options and set "Run all administrators in Admin Approval Mode" to disabled.  This will completely disabled UAC.  (You can also do this via Group Policy)

Computer Configuration -> Windows Settings, then Security, so pretty spot on.  I have made the changes and asked the user to test it by going into the control panel, or device manager - this seems to always trigger the UAC, if I recall correctly.  Will report back.

That was it!  Tried several things to invoke the UAC, but no pop-up.
